The Pretty Junk

13 September, 2012

I think it's pretty obvious I'm a shameless slut for vintage, so I adore discovering online, independent vintage stores to fill my wardrobe. When I came across The Pretty Junk I was in heaven as they host a mixture of vintage treasures, as well as some carefully selected modern pieces that stay true to their brand's fun, retro image. There's a strong vibe of cool L.A. Americana that runs through the store with their slogan tees, loud print playsuits and cut-off, customised 'Daisy Dukes'. Even the models seem to be having a hell of a lot of fun!

ONE. // TWO. // THREE.

I picked out a few dresses that particularly caught my eye on the website that are still available to buy. I'm a bit of a sucker for a paisley print, and the batwing sleeve on the first dress gives it a perfect 80's feel. I don't think I can never have enough crotchet dresses and a red one is definitely missing from my collection! I would love to layer it over a slip dress then throw on an embroidered waistcoat over the top. The third and final little black, studded bodycon number is from their modern day collection. I'm only just starting to welcome bodycon back into my life but haven't got a simple, little black number yet. I'm truly gutted that this vest has sold out and I'm hoping they're going to re-stock it at some point in the future. Not only do The Pretty Junk stock a wonderful collection of clothes, but they also sell gifts which includes records and this Sony vintage Walkman! Who wouldn't want one of those?!
